Gasper River Catholic Youth Camp and Retreat Center

During this pandemic, statistics show that young people are seeking peace and community.  They will get them both and so much more at Gasper River Catholic Youth Camp!  This summer we will follow all guidelines set forth by the state to ensure the safety of our campers and staff.  The state has not released the standards yet and as they do, we will inform you of all changes.  We will have limited attendance this summer (currently 50% occupancy), additional hand washing/sanitation stations, campers will stay in small groups, masks will be worn, campers will be asked to monitor their health two weeks out until they arrive at camp, and additional daily cleaning and sanitizing of buildings and most everything at camp will be done outdoors.  The safety of campers and staff is our top priority!  Visit our website, for more information and for updates.  Please remember that space will be limited so sign up today and don’t miss out on an amazing summer at Gasper River Catholic Youth Camp!!!
